The Workshop on the Languages of Meso-America (WLMA) brings together students and faculty at the University of California, Santa Cruz with research interests in the languages of Meso-America. It continues a long tradition of theoretical investigation and documentation of these languages within the Department of Linguistics. Current participants work with speakers of Lake Pátzcuaro P'urhepecha, San Martín Peras Mixtec, Santiago Laxopa Zapotec, and Teotitlán del Valle Zapotec, among other languages, in Mexico and in diaspora communities across California. During the academic year, WLMA hosts regular meetings where participants can present their own research, discuss a paper, or hear an outside speaker.
